When is the Thanksgiving Day game between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys? The game is scheduled for 4:15 PM EST and will be played in Cowboys Stadium located in Arlington, TX. You may be wondering what is the line for the game? The latest lines have the  Cowboys favored by three points with a over/under of 47. Team Statistics Passing Yards Rushing Yards OPP Passing OPP Rushing Cowboys 284.3 (7th) 83.1 (9th) 211.4 (6th) 106.6 (13th) Redskins 214.7 (22nd) 165 (2nd) 289.2 (29th) 94.6 (7th)   Quick Preview Dallas fell behind early to Cleveland and then needed a late field goal to force overtime last week. They did win moving themselves to 5-5 but if Dallas is to make the playoffs this game is a must win. The offense is one dimensional and will rely heavily on quarterback Tony Romo and a cast of Cowboy receivers which statistically favors well in this match-up as the Redskins have not proven they can stop anyone though the air. It was not long ago that Mike Shanahan made comments suggesting that the Redskins needed to start looking at next season. Soon after they blew the doors off of Philadelphia to the tune of 31-6. Though that game came against a rookie quarterback who was playing on the road. The stock of Robert Griffin III could not be higher going into this game and Dallas is quite banged up with linebacker Sean Lee out for the season and Jay Ratcliff questionable. Tireball,com Prediction We strongly like Dallas to win this game. The Redskins can keep this game close in the first half but if Dallas capitalizes on the mistakes of Griffin then this one will get away from Washington in a hurry.

Tony Romo Needs To Make Some Changes

What’s up with Tony Romo? I haven’t seen a worse display of quarterback skills in a long time. The game yesterday against the Redskins was just the straw to break the camels back for me.

Nothing comes easy for these Dallas Cowboys

The year is 2000, and it would mark the end of an era for the once-fabled Dallas Cowboys franchise. Just a short time before, there were the three Super Bowl wins in four years, the Big Three; there was “Prime Time.” But now there is Troy Aikman on his last legs, Michael Irvin retired the year before, and Emmitt Smith stumbling towards a few more all-time records. The glory was...

Cowboys' playoff hopes getting dark

ARLINGTON, Texas When the Cowboys led the Redskins, 3-0, in the first quarter Thursday, the skies were blue through the open roof at Cowboys Stadium. Then dark clouds rolled in and a light rain began. Even if you're not into omens, it was pretty spooky that the darkness coincided with the Redskins taking the control of the game. Washington scored 28 points in the second quarter...

Cowboys playing with fire to throw deep

As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all. We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
